I've been pretty absent around here, I hope I was missed :)
December was pretty busy with work Christmas parties, kids Christmas parties, ballet open house, birthday parties, Sparks & Brownie season end activities.....and the list goes on.
We had a great holiday, school is still out for us and doesn't reopen until Monday.
Diabetes was well behaved most of the time. Christmas Eve and day was an endless rollercoaster. I was amazed by the up and down swings, but we dealt with it. We let her be a kid first, then considered the diabetes.

At my regular nightly 3am check, I was amazed to see 15mmol/L peering back at me. With a quick little correction it was back to bed until morning.
The girls got up sometime after 6am and the rest of the morning is a blur of squeals and laughter!
It was nice to have the pump this year and not have to worry about the timing of everything, or when we had to eat, or having to stop opening presents to eat. We could pretty much do any of that whenever we wanted.
We spent a lot of time with family and just relaxed and enjoyed each other.
Unfortunately, the weather hasn't been cooperating. It has been excruciatingly cold! Like more than -50 C with the windchill. For my American friends, that's -58F. That's cold!
One of our vehicles has been having trouble going, even when the block heater has been plugged in, water pipes have been freezing in town, and the power has gone a few times. The worst for us is that it has been to cold to get out and enjoy our cabin. From a diabetes perspective, its been difficult to get some exercise for Amy.
I'm hoping the cold spell is coming to an end, I think its only suppose to be -20C this weekend. That will feel like a tropical vacation in comparison.
On another note, we are going to see the movie Frozen tomorrow night....title is very appropriate!!
Enjoy your January and stay warm!
